Show the infographic above to any working photographer and he or she will nod knowingly. Despite what people think, most photographers, working writers, painters, illustrators, and graphic designers don’t spend their days hanging with the muse, partying like rock stars, or flitting off to exotic locations to do a story or a photo shoot.
The sad truth is that most creative professionals actually put in lots of hours on the more mundane side of work, like editing, filing, updating software and equipment, marketing, bookkeeping, promotions, and the like. Oh yeah, and making Blurb books (which we’d like to think falls into the fun side of things).
Thanks to a Photo Editor for passing this on.
